BERLIN — Berlin High School is participating in “I Am College Bound/I Applied” which aims to increase the number of high school seniors submitting college applications as part of the state’s “I Am College Bound” month celebration in November.
On Wednesday, Nov. 16, seniors will have the opportunity to submit at least one college admissions application with the assistance of representatives from admissions offices from various New Hampshire colleges and universities during the school day at Berlin High School.
The “I Am College Bound/I Applied” campaign provides assistance to students who may be the first in their family to attend college, low-income students and others who may be unfamiliar with the college application process. As part of the initiative, students receive information about the additional components of a college application, college financial aid process and filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Students will also be eligible to win a $500 college scholarship for participating in the program.
The program, part of a nationwide initiative through the American Council on Education, is sponsored in New Hampshire by the N.H. Department of Education, N.H. Higher Education Assistance Foundation, and colleges and universities of the N.H. College and University Council. Since 2014, nearly 800 high school seniors have over 1500 college applications.
Appointments are required. If interested, please call the BHS Guidance Office at (603) 752-4122, ext. 1504 no later than Nov. 3.
